10 Surprisingly Fun Indoor Workouts To Do During COVID Lockdowns.

0 Comments

Another lockdown across Australia and we are all feeling it! The weather is pretty doom and gloom (except for the sunny states) which makes it pretty challenging to get outside for your favourite workout. 

Or maybe you’re just too deep into a Netflix binge to peel yourself off the couch. 

That’s OK; we’ll take our workout with a side of heating and some quality entertainment, please. 

We’ve put together 10 surprisingly fun indoor workouts for you to try, and the best part is you don’t even need to turn the TV off. In fact, these binge-worthy indoor workouts require your favourite TV shows. 

Before We Begin

Each of these workouts involves jumping rope, and they’re a super fun way to put any Crossrope to use. The rope you use is totally up to you, and feel free to use any footwork variation that you know and enjoy. 

Need a refresher on jump rope steps? Check out our beginners guide before you get started. 

Don’t have a jump rope? No sweat! You can totally substitute any of the jump rope exercises with jumping jacks, high knees, butt kicks, or simply jogging in place. Here are 10 simple bodyweight exercises you could use for inspiration.

Remember, you can modify as much as you need. Make these indoor workouts work for you!

If you want to give jump ropes a try, check out our Get Fit Bundle; it comes with four weighted jump ropes (1/4 LB, 1/2 LB, 1 LB, and 2 LB), and it’s the perfect combo of cardio and strength training. The bundle is great to have around for indoor workouts when the weather isn’t on your side.

Let’s jump in!
